Serbia has connected West with East for centuries – a land in which civilisations, cultures, faiths, climates and landscapes meet and mingle.
It is located in the centre of the Balkan Peninsula, in south-eastern Europe. The northern portion belongs to central Europe, but in terms of geography and climate it is also partly a Mediterranean country. Serbia is landlocked but as a Danube country it is connected to distant seas and oceans. Serbia is a cross roads of Europe and a geopolitically important territory. The international roads and railway lines, which run through the country’s river valleys, form the shortest link between Western Europe and the Middle East.
From the agricultural regions of the Pannonian Plain in the north, across the fertile river valleys and orchard-covered hills of Šumadija, the landscape of Serbia continues southward, gradually giving way to mountains rich in canyons, gorges and caves, as well as wellpreserved forests. Serbia’s beautiful mountains, national parks, rivers and lakes are the perfect location for an active outdoor holiday – from hunting and fishing to extreme sports.
Many  times  during  its  rich, centuries-long history, Serbia has been at the centre of Europe’s and the world’s attention, out of all proportion to its modest size, economic might and number of inhabitants. Many lessons on bravery, patriotism and the struggle for freedom can be learned wherever you turn in Serbia, as you pass through its cities and regions.
The cultural and historical heritage of Serbia begins with prehistoric archaeological sites and its legacy from classical antiquity. Perhaps its greatest riches, though, are in the many mediaeval Serbian churches and monasteries, some of which are included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. All year round, numerous cultural, entertainment, traditional and sporting events are held in Serbia, demonstrating the creative power and spiritual vitality of this country. Today, Serbia is a modern, democratic European country, on the path to membership of the European Union, which a diverse range of visitors – from young backpackers to participants in congresses and fairs – visit every day.  Statistically, the most-visited tourist destinations are the cities of Belgrade and Novi Sad, the mountains of Kopaonik and Zlatibor and the spa towns of Vrnjačka Banja and Sokobanja.
Serbia is a landlocked country situated in south-eastern Europe, in the centre of the Balkan Peninsula, between 41°53′ and 46°11′ latitude North and 18°49′ and 23°00′ longitude East. Because Serbia covers part of the Pannonian Plain in the north, the country also belongs to Central Europe, while due to its southern region, in terms of geography and climate, Serbia is also considered a Mediterranean country.
Serbia stands at the crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe, its routes leading via the MoravaVardar and Nišava-Marica valleys to the Aegean coast, to Asia Minor and to the Middle East. European Transport Corridors 7 (the Danube) and 10 (road and rail) pass through Serbia and meet in Belgrade.
Belgrade, the Serbian capital, lies on the Danube, a waterway connecting Western and Central European countries with the countries of South-eastern and Eastern Europe. Its harbour is visited by ships from the Black Sea, and with the opening of the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal it became a central point of the most important waterway in Europe which extends from the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the Black Sea. The Belgrade-Bar railway line connects the city with the Adriatic Sea and Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport is a hub for key European air routes. 
 

Belgrade Fortress KALEMEGDAN

 

Serbia’s borders are 2114.2 km in length. Serbia borders Bulgaria to the east, Romania to the northeast, Hungary to the north, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the west, Montenegro to the  southwest  and  Albania  and
Macedonia to the south. 
It does not take long for foreign visitors to Serbia to discover the hospitality, kindness, openness and warmth of the country’s residents.
Shaking hands, done using the right hand,  is  customary  when  being introduced or meeting somebody of either gender. Kissing is not a necessity when meeting somebody for the first
time, but every time you meet from then on, if you have developed affection for the person in question, kissing three times on the cheeks is the order of the day in Serbia. Of course, nobody will object if you only kiss once or twice while giving a long and sincere hug.
 
In Serbia, toasts are usually made with traditional rakija (brandy), often home-distilled. Toasts are made by clinking glasses, making direct eye contact and loudly proclaiming “Živeli!” A speech is usually only made on formal occasions, normally by the host, but a guest may give one, too. 
 
Serbs enjoy rich and flavoursome food and normally have three meals a day, with lunch being the largest.
Paying the bill in restaurants is a big part of the Serbian mentality. The host will almost never allow a guest to pay for lunch, dinner or drinks because it is customary for the host to take care of all expenses while a guest is staying with him or her.
In contrast to the rest of Europe, there is no single day of the week in Serbia when you cannot have a night out and that holds true for all generations, for all lifestyles and musical
tastes and for all available budgets. After a wild night out, somewhere around three or four o’clock in the morning, people continue onward in search of grilled meat or burek. 
Although Serbia has for centuries been the scene of frequent wars, devastation, fires and massmigrations, on the turbulent roads leading from East to Europe and from Europe to East, a rich cultural and historical legacy has remained there. The rich variety of historical monuments and sites of natural beauty make Serbia a country of great interest for tourism and very much part of its attraction.
Testament to prehistoric life in this region are the numerous archaeological sites. Lepenski Vir, the first example of socioeconomic structure between 6500 and 5500 BC, Starčevo from the Early Neolithic,
5500 to 4500 BC, and Vinča from the Late Neolithic, 4500 to 3200 BC, constitute the evidence that this was for millennia a cultural centre of the prehistoric world.
 
One  of  the  most  important categories of preserved monument in  Serbia  are  Orthodox monasteries, which came into being during the period from the 12th to the 17th century. They can be found in an area ranging from Fruška Gora in the north, through the Morava and Ibar valleys, all the way to Kosovo and Metohija. The Stari Ras and Sopoćani complex, Studenica monastery and Visoki Dečani,  together  with  the Patriarchate of Peć, Gračanica and the Our Lady of Ljeviš church in Prizren, are listed under the joint name of “Mediaeval Monuments in Kosovo (Serbia)” on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

There are also the important remains of Roman roads and towns, with a variety of structures – which today bear witness to six centuries of the presence of the Roman Empire on the territory of Serbia.
Viminacium, today Kostolac near Požarevac, where the Mlava flows into the Danube, we find one of the most important Roman towns and military  encampments  from  the period from the 1st to the 6th century. The civilian settlement next to the encampment during the rule of Hadrian (117-138) gained the status of a municipium, a town with a high degree of autonomy. 
www.viminacium.org.rs/en/  Sirmium, one of the most important towns of the late Roman Empire, was located by the river Sava, on the site of modern-day Sremska Mitrovica. Founded in the 1st century, Sirmium reached its zenith in 294 when it was pronounced one of the four capitals of the Roman Empire.

Native town of Roman emperor Galerius
Felix Romuliana was an imperial palace built on the orders of Galerius Maximianus on the spacious plateau of Gamzigrad, near the city of Zaječar. Galerius, who was born in this area, raised the palace in the 3rd and 4th centuries in honour of himself and his mother Romula, after whom he named it. It belongs to a special category of Roman court architecture associated only with the period of the Tetrarchy and is the best-preserved example of this style. 
www.muzejzajecar.org 
Not far from Niš is Mediana, the most famous and prestigious suburb of the classical city of Naissus. It was built near the river and the thermal springs, over an area of more than 40 hectares. Mediana was built in the early 4th century AD, during the time of Constantine the Great, as a residence for use by Roman emperors when visiting Naissus. 
Iustiniana Prima, or Caričin Grad (‘Empress’s Town’), is one of the most important Byzantine towns in the interior of the Balkan peninsula. It is situated 29 km west of Leskovac, 7 km from Lebane, close to the village of Prekopčelica, where the Caričina river flows into the Svinjarica. Emperor Justinian I, originally from southern Serbia, decided to raise a city in his area of birth in honour of his own name. 
 

BELGRADE
 

BELGRADE is the capital city. The official language of Serbia is Serbian, member of the group of south Slavic languages.
The Cyrillic script is in official use, while the Latin script is also widely used, since both are taught in schools. The Cyrillic of Serbian has 30 letters – one letter per each phoneme, making it unique among scripts.
The language and scripts of national minorities are in official use in areas with minority populations. Foreigners are recommended to use English for communication, while German, French and Russian are present to a lesser extent. Those curious and hungry for new discoveries might wish to try and decipher the undeciphered symbols found on the ceramic objects at the Vinča archaeological site, 13 km from the centre of Belgrade. The Vincian script (or property marks) arose 7,500 years ago, bearing witness to literacy during the Neolithic age and remaining a mystery to this day.
An exciting mixture of rich and diverse history, culture, architecture and urban spirit. With some of the most attractive locations, Belgrade Fortress – the oldest cultural and historical monument, Skadarlija– bohemian quarter in the city centre, Knez Mihailova Street; Old and New Palace, Federal Parliament, Temple of St. Sava, Zemun and many others, Belgrade makes the cultural centre of South East Europe.

After downloading the app, simply point the smart phone camera towards the nearest location and a series of short stories will instantly open. An audio guide will be automatically activated allowing users to focus on the architecture of buildings, institutions, monuments, religious facilities and details rather than the phone screen. Maps provide an actual tour around the city as the application proposes the best sightseeing route, guiding to the next closest location.
The landmarks covered by the app are the Monument to Prince Mihailo, Gratitude to France Monument, Monument to Karadjordje, Terazije Fountain, Monument to Vuk Karadžić, City Hall, Presidency Building, National Assembly Building, Moskva Hotel, “?“ Inn,  National Library and Belgrade City Library, Djura Jakšić’s House, Residences of Princess Ljubica and Prince Miloš, Nikola
Tesla Museum, May 25th Museum, House of Flowers, Cathedral, St Sava’s Church, St Mark’s Church, Church of the Holy Virgin Mary – Ružica, Church of Christ the King, Synagogue and Bayrakli Mosque.
The application is available in Serbian and English, and is created for Android and iOS. It supports the phone models with Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" and new generation models, and iOS 5.0 and new generation models. It is available in Google play and will also be put up to the App Store for iOS before the EXIT festival begins.   The application will be upgraded further on to include new city sites and the Exit special edition will serve as the basis for a special application, Novi Sad Talking.
